Bye bye White Stig, maybe it's time to bring on Red Stig.

Can't really blame the guy for trying to cash in a little bit, since he surely gets the short-end of salary deal on the programme.

Original (black) Stig i.e. Perry McCarthy was quoted at saying he got about GBP700 a week for his ~2yr run, Ben was apparently at GPB10K per episode, which I imagine pales in comparison to the three hosts, and that's not counting their endorsement income. BTW, the BBC does cash in on Stig-branded gift items such as men's grooming products.

Hopefully, Ben has something lucrative lined up, since surely the Beeb will fire him due to a contract clause that stipulates anonymity.
